Cheyenne camp attacked at Powder River

In Black Horse Ledger, ca. 1877-79, pages 6-7, Edward E. Ayer Collection, Newberry Library.

From a Cheyenne ledger book, probably illustrated between 1877 and 1879, containing drawings by Black Horse and other Cheyenne warriors. The Black Horse ledger book is part of a long tradition of the Plains Indians of chronicling their lives pictorially, first on buffalo hides, and later on the blank pages of ledger books obtained from U.S. soldiers, traders, missionaries, and reservation employees.
